Speaking of competing you watch me compete in a yoyo competition for the very first time at the CalState 2017 competition this Saturday, April 15, 2017.  Details are below.

Yoyo Tricks Tutorial – Vanilla Mint

Thank Vanilla Mint is the trick I performed in the slow-mo video in a previous post Everything Is Cooler In Slow-mo Even Vanilla Mint.

In this tutorial I used yoyo named Expedition by BaseCamp.  The actual yoyo is here below:

In this yoyo trick tutorial, I perform the complete combo at a slower pace.  This is to show you the details of the various elements of the trick.  The viewpoint starts of from the audience point of view.

I then switch to the yoyoers point of view.  This is the meat of the tutorial.  The pace of the trick is much slower and I have broken out the elements in steps.  From this viewpoint, you can see the intricacies of the trick.  You will see where to land the yoyo, what string and even what finger position to use to throughout the combo.

After the step by step yoyoers view point, I switch back to the audience view and execute the yoyo trick combo at its intended speed

The yoyo trick seems complex, but with this video, you should be able to follow the steps.  With practice, you will be able to add it to your combos.

Have fun!

Yoyo Tricks – The Freshman

It is the first day of school.  I have my books, backpack, lunch, school clothes and yoyo.  You meet your teachers, find your classes and meet new friends as well as reunite with old ones.  Everything feels fresh, new and exciting.  This is the inspiration to the yoyo trick in the video.

I named the trick The Freshman because when I do the trick, it feels fresh, new, exciting and even a little cheeky, LOL.  Seriously, I looked at this video and thought to myself, I look like a freshman during his first day of school.

The yoyo in the video is a plastic yoyo by Yoyo Factory called the Yoyo Factory Protostar.
I like this yoyo because even though it is plastic, it plays like a metal yoyo.

Yoyo Tricks – Everything Is Cooler In Slow-mo even Vanilla Mint

This video is different from the ones we posted before.  We visited a friend of my Dad in his production studio and I was blown away.  Actually my Dad was blown away because between him and I, he is the one who geeks over video equipment 🙂

In the studio, we shot video of tricks from different angles and scenes but mostly outdoors.  This one was the only one we shot indoors.

Lorenzyo Cubing performing a Yoyo trick he named Vanilla Mint using a CLYW Orca.

The setup was fairly simple, there were two side lights and a black backdrop as the background.  At first I thought, hmmm this is different.  But it was not until I saw the video footage that made me realize how cool the shot was.

You know I cannot name yoyo tricks and in fact, I am one of those players that says it is just a combo.  But since this video is full of new things, lighting, background, indoor video footage, the music, I am going to name it.  Let me call this combo Vanilla Mint, because it is cool and refreshing like the breath mints sitting on my desk 🙂

My favorite mints sitting on my desk.

The trick itself is straight forward but technical in nature.  It involves string slack control, speed control, and finishes with a picture trick.  As if the shot was not cool enough, when I was editing it, I saw something that made it cooler, slow motion.

Check out the video and comment below.  Thanks!

Yoyo Tricks – Magic Yoyo Stealth M04

Finally got the Magic Yoyo Stealth M04 from YoyoBestBuy and it is pretty cool.  I picked it up from the store and was so excited.  The yoyo comes in two color schemes, Greyscale Stealth Splash and an Ultra Violet Red Splash.

I ended up choosing the Greyscale Stealth Splash, which you will see in the video.

Even before leaving the store, I tried it out and was able to feel out the yoyo.  It felt good to hold and even better to play.  Check out the video I put together and if you want more information about the Magic Yoyo Stealth MO4 click on the link.

Special shout out to JD at YoyoBestBuy who was gracious enough to let me check out the shop.

Yoyo Tricks Tutorial – Basics of Horizontal Yoyo Play

Horizontal yoyo tricks are pretty cool to watch and satisfying to execute.  When I started playing yoyos I could not do any horizontal tricks until I started paying attention to others who can do it well.  Once I analyzed the movements, arm positions, strowing direction os the yoyo, it finally clicked.

In the video I used the Yoyo Factory SHU-TA seen here:

In the video you will see various ways to throw the yoyo an perform horizontal tricks.  You will see how to do a horizontal break away, a horizontal front throw and some horizontal yoyo tricks.
